Trinity House Wedding // Kate & Indy
I love a London wedding, and when you can see one of the City’s most iconic landmarks as you say your vows, you really do feel like you are at the heart of the City. Kate and Indy chose Trinity House, overlooking Tower Bridge, for their wedding day. It was a bitterly cold day, with snow flurries and an icy wind. The warmth of an American bride with a huge smile and the sweetest nature, plus the array of amazing Indian food made the atmosphere inside Trinity House feel anything but. The ceremony was touching and emotional, and incorporated the couple giving a specially designed ring to Kate’s daughter. Amongst the guests on the day was a very special little girl named Ruby. A classmate of Kate’s daughter, when Ruby was 5 she collapsed at the school with massive heart failure. She sustained a life-changing brain injury and is relearning skills once taken for granted. To raise funds & hope for Ruby’s ongoing neuro-rehabilitation, Kate and her family helped share Ruby’s recovery story (www.one4ruby.com).
Champagne and canapés preceded some of the most delicious Indian food I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating, provided by Cafe Spice Namasté (regular readers of my blog will know that I am a big fan of Indian feasts a wedding!) .Speeches followed, and a few anecdotes and tributes to the couple from their friends and family, including a rather unique game where the blindfolded groom must identify his wife by the feel of her leg (in a line up of other, well, legs). Upon identifying his bride, he must then drink champagne out of her shoe. Good on Indy for playing by the rules! A wonderful couple, I had a great time covering their wedding, and some favourites from it are below
